"In the Making" weaves a captivating tale of mystery around the protagonist, St. John, an Orphan facing a sentient virus and a monstrous organism. We loved immersing ourselves in the gripping sci-fi world that Tonya R. Moore created.

    There's been a LOT of great stuff over the past few days, and some remarkable TSs and Winners. Well done everyone!! One debut writer whom I'd love to promote is Ashe Lawson, with her poem: 'We can't let robots write all the love poems'. Thanks so much, and WELL DONE everyone for a fantastic week of writing! xx https://vocal.media/poets/we-can-t-let-the-robots-write-all-the-love-poems

    So much good stuff this last week, not sure where to start but I loved this story by Bugsy..the way it describes the process of therapy is very tangible! https://vocal.media/chapters/2nd-appointment

    Kale Bender is one of my more recent subscribers, and a writer of great range and versatility. I've enjoyed his poems and his microfiction, but as a fellow sci-fi fan I must admit it's Kale's work in this genre I'm most drawn to! He's very prolific, but to start you off here's one I particularly enjoyed, technically a Star Wars tribute although the characters in it are all originals of Kale's. Whether you're a modern, a prequels, or like me a classic era kind of reader, you'll find something here that chimes just right with your own personal Star Wars experience. So take a look below, and may the force be with you! https://vocal.media/fiction/tn-421

    Would love to see Rick Henry Christopher's compelling Blackbird Fly series receive a TOP STORY nod. It is fantastic. Here is the latest installment:https://vocal.media/chapters/blackbird-fly-part-six?fbclid=IwAR2_CfIezc5Qnjc_pyC9tOiELQO9g6cbvbSnkupnffUvgC1sXgBwoHCKKRE

    Hi, I'm Maureen and I write about books and writing, and also write some mystery/thriller/horror flash fiction! Here are four pieces I recommend: -Prose Poetry vs. Flash Fiction: https://vocal.media/writers/prose-poetry-vs-flash-fiction -Note on Fridge: a really interestingly formatted flash fiction: https://vocal.media/fiction/note-on-fridge -Green Eggs & Ham & Pernoste: https://vocal.media/fiction/green-eggs-and-ham-and-pernoste -Passing the Killer: the author's true experience of seeing her brother's best friend right after he killed someone!: https://vocal.media/criminal/passing-the-killer

  • Judey Kalchik about a month ago

    The final chapter of the collaborative fiction story will drop any day. I suggest this, the first in the series, written by Ian Read

  • Dana Crandellabout a month ago

    Dana here, AKA Doc, AKA Bro. I'd like to give a shout-out to my Sissy, Heather's very recently published piece, a sad but beautiful note to a departed friend: https://vocal.media/poets/wildflowers-282i40h2j

  • Will get in early. Five stories I think deserve Top Story Status This from Raymond G Taylor https://vocal.media/writers/to-vocal-or-not-to-vocal This interesting one from Sophia Hayes https://vocal.media/history/15-historical-facts-that-will-disturb-you-hmfo0a64 This great concept from Celia in Underland https://vocal.media/fiction/the-great-and-auspicious-library-of-living-tales This great tale from Kelli Sheckler-Amsden https://vocal.media/poets/the-map-5cj0c3r A great insight from Rachel Robbins https://vocal.media/geeks/whatever-happened-to-baby-jane-1962 And always thought this was worthy of a Top Story but Vocal said no https://vocal.media/poets/another-raven?via=mike
